DELOITTE has promoted a record number of women to partner as part of the firm’s efforts to increase diversity among its partner base.

The Big Four firm has added 80 new partners with effect from 1 June, 24 of which are women.

In the past two years, Deloitte has established a series of programmes to identify and retain high performing female leaders including a commitment to gender pay gap transparency, a Return to Work programme and a sponsorship initiative for senior women within our firm.

The firm’s consulting service line has promoted 24 new partners, with 20 in financial advisory, 18 in audit & risk advisory, 17 in tax and one partner promotion in internal client services with 24 new partners based outside London.

David Sproul, senior partner and chief executive of Deloitte UK, said: “Today’s announcement represents another positive year for partner promotions, reflecting the continued success of the firm despite uncertain economic conditions.

“We have seen a second consecutive year of strong female representation amongst Deloitte’s new partners.  Achieving greater gender diversity is a clear business imperative and these promotions evidence the success of the range of initiatives we have put in place.”
